PUPILS at a village primary school have been getting involved in a chess challenge.
Classes three, four, five and six at Tatworth Primary School are taking part in the British Land UK Chess Challenge 2011, which started earlier this month.
The British Land UK Chess Challenge is being run for the 16th time this year. Last year 66,220 children from 2007 schools and clubs took part.
Pupils aged seven to 11 at the primary school are playing once a week and the results of the games between now and Easter will be tallied up.
All children taking part receive spots, mascots and badges and the lucky pupil who wins the school contest will be presented with a trophy at Easter time.
The best players can even go through to an area megafinal and to the south gigafinal and national terafinal.
